Darryl Zeinert, processing for 27 years "One of the reasons I like working here is that if you work hard, then they will reward you."

   Nueske's Crest- "There were many who told me that in order to grow you had to 'follow the trend'... bigger is better... I soon learned that growing BIG was not what I wanted our company to be... To me it was more important that others would know us as we truly were... in our promises... standards of truth and honesty... we had to have a great product, but the "taste" of dishonest business practices would soon take us down, even if we had the best bacon in the world!"- Bob Nueske
